Exeter trio start for England

Jack Nowell

Eddie Jones' men face Scotland in the Six Nations on Saturday

England head coach Eddie Jones has made four changes to his team for Saturday's Six Nations match against Scotland.

Exeter Chiefs trio Jack Nowell, Henry Slade and Ben Moon all start. Meanwhile, Newcastle's Mark Wilson comes into the starting 15 replacing Brad Shields. 

Chiefs hooker Luke Cowan-Dickie features on the bench. Victory for England could see them clinch the title, if Ireland beat Wales beforehand.

Eddie Jones says: “It is the last week of the tournament so it’s exciting. It will be a fascinating finish to the Championship with three teams that can win it and we are playing against one of our most traditional foes in Scotland for the Calcutta Cup. We have had a good preparation and the side is going to be in a great state to play against Scotland on Saturday.

“Scotland is a difficult side, they are always at you, they play with a lot of enthusiasm and effort and have got a lot of attacking strings to their bow. Finn Russell is an exceptional player at 10 and they have got some pace on the outside so we are going to have to defend really well against them.”

Two other Exeter players also feature In the Six Nations this weekend. Sam Skinner starts for Scotland and Thomas Francis starts for Wales.
